Photo Art Friday - July 20, 2012

To view my Flower Art Friday entry click on the link.

Now it's time to join Bonnie for Photo Art Friday over at Pixel Dust Photo Art.  As always there is an open theme for any piece of photo art or an optional theme.  This week the focus was on "Light" that wows you in a photo.

I've chosen 3 different pieces that all show light in a particular theme.
We've had a lot of Thunderstorms lately in our area and some very spectacular looking skies.  So without further ado here are my 3 pieces. (No before shots as these are pretty much SOOC with a few minor edits.)  I'm going to place them in order of my favorites.

#3:  Peachy Clouds:

This shot was taken out our backdoor looking West as the sun was setting.  I just love the light from the sun bathing the sky in that glorious peach color.


                                                                                                                                    #2:  Beams From Heaven


























Same view here from the West on a different night.  Aren't the rays of sunlight beaming from these clouds awesome.

#1:  Clouds of Glory:

This shot was taken out our front door looking to the East.  Believe it or not the light on the clouds is SOOC - I just edited to add the antique looking frame.  I love this photo a lot.



So please be sure to tell me in your comments which was your favorite.

Don't forget to pop into the other blogs links and check them out.
Have a wonderful weekend.

  6. These are glorious!!! The middle one is exceptional in terms of the capture of light. It really 'wowed' me! Thank you for sharing these with Photo Art Friday, Ida.

  7. I am caught between the second and the third. The second one, the light beams through the cloud above the others, is a very unusual and spititual view. I have see light beams through the clouds before, but nothing like this. Then the third one is breathtaking ... beautiful and unique. You captured and edited minimally some beauties. And, how lucky are you to be having thunderstorms ... send some my way if you get the chance, though we did finally get a good rain two nights ago. Great job Ida ...

  8. Hi Ida,

    All three shots are gorgeous! This is a tough one, but I guess I would have to say I like the pink clouds the best. Wonderful images.

  9. Hi Ida, They are all nice shots, but I guess I like the second and third shot best. The rays of sunlight in the second shot are very dramatic and I like the fuffy, peachy-colored clouds in the last shot.

  10. Wow! Amazing skies you've managed to "capture." The peach-toned clouds are so warm and soothing; Beams From Heaven looks like a heavenly sign for sure; and the third beauty reminds me of a sky from a Maxfield Parish painting. All lovely in their own way. My favourite would be the second one "Beams..." because of its drama and symbolic aspect.
